We brought our 3yo and 5yo. They both had a lot of fun petting baby pigs, goats, sheep and rabbits. There was also donkeys and horses to pet. The pony ride was fun, but could have been longer. The goat milking and wagon ride were...More

Definitely not worth the money paid for entrance to the farm and the Legends Easter Egg Hunt. The pony ride was ridiculous and I would not recommend. Unfortunately I did not see value for the money paid.

We spent a good time in there. A good collection of animals and birds. My kids really enjoyed it. A really great place for the parties too.

We took our 2 grandchildren (21/2 years and 8 month old) for what we thought would be a fun day, it was not. First of all, it was very expensive and very little to see. There were lots of goats, some sheep, chickens, pigs and...More

I feel like the day camps for younger campers at Butterfield acres would be fun. But not the older- ages 12-14 camps. I was a camper, the instructor was dull, boring, and acted as if she didn't like her job. The website said FIT was...More
